Possible New Rob Show: Julius Caesar Spinoff From Spartacus War of the Damned


Here's some very interesting news from Deadline. Starz and Rob may be teaming up again to for a spin-off from Spartacus. It will be about Julius Caesar.

Julius Caesar is being played by the fantastic Australian actor Todd Lasance in the upcoming Spartacus War of the Damned. Now this would fantastic if it did happen. Todd is a superb actor.

Deadline reports:

"I learned that there is talk about a potential Spartacus spinoff series centered on Roman leader Gaius Julius Caesar. The spinoff idea, which is in the nascent stages, is being shepherded by Spartacus executive producer Robert Tapert"

The character, played by Australian actor Todd Lasance, is adding star power and a formidable new nemesis for the famous gladiator despite the fact there is no hard evidence that Caesar actually was involved in the campaign to put down the Spartacus-led slave rebellion, as he is on the show. Spartacus: War Of The Damned could serve as a nice starting-off point for a spinoff as it features a young Caesar who is yet to begin his ascent toward ruling the Roman state.
